#1585: Johnny Enlow

Though not as famous as Cindy Jacobs, Lou Engle or C. Peter Wagner, Johnny Enlow is one of the founders of Seven Mountains Domionism, as well as a self-declared “prophet”. Among his prophecies is his 2014 prophecy that God is taking over Hollywood once and for all. The prophecy actually quotes God directly:

For the Lord says, ‘I am already invading Hollywood far beyond what you can imagine. I am already loosening up the ground and preparing to uproot systems and structures that you think are just the rules of the game that you must play. I am even already beginning to put in My new structures […] I am the ultimate game changer in Hollywood, and I have come to change the game. And I truly am looking for those who call themselves after My name, who have not sold out to the Hollywood way of doing things. For I am going to raise up an army of My Josephs in Hollywood, and they will be as Joseph in Old Testament times who prospered in everything He did – because the Lord was with him. The enemy cannot throw up enough roadblocks to counter this factor. If I am with you, Red Seas part. If I am with you, enemy armies are covered by that sea. If I am with you, the Jordan River also parts.’”

And so on, and so forth. Isn’t it fascinating how God always says to his “prophets” precisely what they want him to say? More recently he wrote a column declaring that the fact that American Pharoah recently became the first horse to win the Triple Crown in 37 years is a prophetic sign that “we’re going into the Promised Land of the tops of the 7 mountains of society.”

Enlow is the author of “The Seven Mountain Prophecy”, which asserts that goal of Christians ought to be to establish a “virtual theocracy”, in which government leaders will also be religious leaders so that they can present “the nations of the world to the Lord as His possession” and bring about the return of Christ (government and media should “function on Earth as they do in Heaven,” which is a really strange claim if you think about it). Thus far, the plan has only succeeded in some Middle Eastern countries, but Enlow and his gang are optimistic since they believe they have God on their side. The book also explains for instance how God sent Hurricane Katrina to destroy New Orleans because it was his way of showing gays how much he loves them.

Enlow has, however, said that the best way for Christians to accomplish dominionism is through stealth; according to Os Hillman: “We need to learn to be ‘as wise as serpents and harmless as doves’ and realize that stealth authority and influence are much preferred over overt authority and influence. A low profile diffuses resistance from the opposition.” And in this video featuring Hillman, Enlow, and Lance Wallnau discussing dominionism, they suggest that using language about “taking over” is fine to use when “preaching to the choir” but such language shouldn’t be used in situations where the media or secular audiences are present.

Diagnosis: These people are dangerous, and evil to the core. They are really, truly hoping to model the US on Taliban principles.
